I am a member of St. Dominic Catholic Church. I have been working at St. Dominic Catholic School for 15 years. I am currently teaching a 3K class. I am so blessed to be teaching in a Catholic School and love being a part of St. Dominic! I am married to Scott Rowe and we have 3 children. Our children attended St. Dominic Catholic School and continued their Catholic education at McGill Toolen Catholic High School. Our daughter graduated from Auburn University last spring and is a Pharmacist. Our oldest son is in his Senior year and our youngest is in his Freshman year, both are attending The University of South Alabama.
Pet Week was a success! They loved learning about different pets and sharing our photos of our very own special pets! We learned about how to take care of a pet and how to keep them healthy. Next week, we will continue the alphabet with the Letter Q and our theme will be Nursery Rhymes and Fairytales.
No School on Monday, January 20th in observance of the Martin Luther King Holiday.
If anyone has any large cereal boxes, please send them in. We will be making a mailbox for our Valentine cards in the upcoming month. Each child will need one. Thank you for your help!
Have a wonderful weekend!
